CrossFit Roseville version 5.0
Not only is time to get ready for the next season with new school years, cooler nights, and fall colors, but it’s time to get ready for the next season at CrossFit Roseville.
More then just the paint has been changed. Effective immediately, Jesse Phillips is Head Coach and Owner of CrossFit Roseville. It’s time for CFRV version 5.0. What was version 1-4? I’m glad you asked:
Version 1 – Placer Strength and Conditioning (beginning)
With a barbell and a type B rower I start showing friends and families about CrossFit a couple of nights a week after work. It’s not long before I dream of being on the map as a CrossFit Affiliate just so the world knows we are getting werk done too. Wade Smith (he lives in Savanah, GA now) was pivotal in his support and encouragement as well as many friends and family.
Version 2 – CrossFit Placer (make it official)
Thanks to Greg Glassman and some amazing people at HQ, we become Roseville’s 2nd CrossFit Affiliate operating out of my 3-car garage. It was a trip having people you don’t know come over to your house to workout. I think Geoff Dinger is the only OG (original garage) member still training at CrossFit Roseville. I clearly remember him doing lunges down the street and being so sore he could barely step up into the engine at his FD.
Version 3 – CrossFit Victrix (re-location/expansion)
We rent a wharehouse and change the name. I relocate my civil eingeering office from Douglas Blvd to the front office of the warehouse. During the day I do civil engineering and coach CrossFit in the AM and PM. The name is changed because once you leave Placer County no one knows how to pronounce ‘Placer’. FYI: Victrix = Victorious. A few key coaches start helping to lead the community like Stacey Gilmore (she lives in the OK now) and Amy Breitbart.
Version 4 – CrossFit Roseville (put down roots)
Since we put some roots down, we adopt the name CrossFit Roseville.
I shut down the civil engineering office, you remember the land development slow down right? I devote all my time to coaching, double the size of the gym, and a new coach, Jesse Phillips, joins the box.
Version 5 – CrossFit Roseville (next level)
Now here we are. It’s time for version 5. Jesse Phillips has taken ownership, will be the head coach, and manage all day to day operations. Jesse will also be bringing on Kenny & Tali Stivers as partners. Kenny & Tali will be making their transition back to Seattle over the next 6 months. The most important thing is that CrossFit Roseville keeps advancing forward and this is the best way to see that happen. I will still be coaching classes, developing customized training plans, killing wods (or being killed by wods), and doing what I can to support you all – my CrossFit Roseville family! When a bar scrapes my shin, I will always bleed CrossFit Roseville.
I am grateful that I had the opportunity to interact with so many people through CrossFit Roseville over the past five years as head coach at CrossFit Roseville. I count it as one of my most important personal achievements and blessings from God.
I know that CrossFit Roseville will continue to soar high in all future endeavors and I will continue to do all I can to support the continued growth and success of all CrossFit Roseville members.
For now, I’m going to enjoy working out with my friends, high fiving the CFRV tribe after every wod, and relentlessly pursuing our goals together.
